Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of new products on the market that aim to deliver hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. The question is, do these options make sense here in Mountain Home ?

Before you buy a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal solution. A Mountain Home geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution offers heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater is a component that captures the normally wasted heat generated by a unit's compressor and uses it to treat the water. Although additional heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more often and can provide most, if not all, of your hot water. However, during the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus heat - you'll need to use your existing water heating process.

Waterfurnace also offers dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed if you would to have geothermal supply 100% of your hot water needs. Like solar solutions, they qualify for the 30% federal tax credit. However, unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

Hot water - it's one more reason to switch to geothermal products. Set up an appointment today with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Mountain Home geothermal solution makes sense for you.
